Skin Supplements are only part of the skin’s pin code needed for the optimum results in skin health and general wellness. There are so many products out there that promise the ‘elixir of youth’ when in actual fact environmental factors, lifestyle and diet play a huge part- supplements support what we do and how we eat to get the best possible outcome BUT some supplements contain bulking agents and artificial sweeteners that do not benefit to us so be aware of the ingredient deck just as you should in skincare products.
Some collagen drinks for example are full of sweeteners and nasties that the actual amount of collagen is minimal or not low molecular weight of hydrolysed collagen that is easily digested and absorbed into the bloodstream. Several studies have highlighted the high level of absorption of hydrolysed collagen into the bloodstream; collagen derived from marine sources has been shown to be even more readily absorbed than other sources of collagen.
